    Currently, I'm trying to catch a Bangaii Cardinal out of my 90 gal. with no success. I've removed some of the decorations from the tank but I can't move the net fast enough to catch him before he finds a hole to dart into. Catching him is extreamly important as he is suffering from a bad case of...

    I added a long tentacle anemone to the tank about 2 weeks ago. My 2 ocellaris clowns started hosting it after a few days. All seemed to be going well. After about a week, I started to notice that the smaller clown looks to have fin rot. His tail and pectoral fins look a little tattered, like...

    I woke up a few mornings ago and my Kole Tang's caudal fin looked like it had been slightly cut in a few places. It came on very suddenly and I read that with fin/tail rot you would notice white cloudy spots on the fish beforehand and I didn't, but I think it might be fin rot. So my question to...

Everyone seemed to be adjusting well except for my angel...

    At the LFS i did not not notice this but the fish has had this white spot for over a week. I want to call it ich however it is like a small cotton ball (fraction of the size of course) and I was wondering what I should do. The fish is extremely happy, eating and swimming very well. I have been...

    And I don't know why. He was doing great, I've had him for about 8 months now. He's been eating brine and I throw copepods in there every few days. But a few days ago I noticed he's been stopping and laying in the sand for extended periods of time, eventually he'll swim off, but when he lays...

    Well, after much debating with myself, I decided to add a CopperBanded Butterfly to my 180 gallon reef. I have gone back and forth about trying to keep one as I know their survival rate in captivity is less than encouraging. I had mainly been thinking about keeping one due to the abundance of...
